Its Miles' birthday today and we are celebrating by playing our favourites. A true pioneer that helped to expand the horizons of music into uncharted terrain, blowing our minds along the way. Although we are kind of blue that we never saw you in person, we treasure your music as a fundamental part of our lives. . #recordstore #vintagevinyl #mabuvinyl #jazz #vintage #cooljazz #analoguesound #capetown #collectors #vintagevinyl #cratedigger #vinylgram #instavinyl #bebop #milesdavis #rebirthofcool #porgyandbess #kindofblue #recordlabel #loveofsound

Fear - The Record Slash 2007 reissue . They were slated as punk poseurs by many, probably because they could actually sing and play well. This album has some pretty straightforward hardcore tunes, plus some where they push the packet a bit more with blues edges or sax, or discordance. They have some pretty lame attempts at shock-tactic lyrics, which just come off as offensive. Overall an ok punk record with some great moments but pretty average compared to other LA punk offerings . . . . . #nowspinning #vinylmusic #ilovevinyl #vinylclub #record #vinyl #vinylcollectionpost #records #vinyloftheday #vinyljunkie #vinylcollector #vinylcollecting #thevinylrecordclub #myvinylcollection #vinylrecords #vinylcollection #myrecordcollection #vinylrecordcollection #vinylporn #recordcollector #recordsleeve #vinylcommunity #vinylgram #instavinyl #recordcollection #nowplaying #vinylshared #punkvinyl #LAhardcore #hardcorepunk

Spinning a lesser-known #2000stuesday album hosted by the amazingly cool @meeseeks_vinyl 😎 Machine is the second EP by New York indie rockers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, that contains three songs from their Fever To Tell sessions. It’s fun to think about how any of these three songs could have been on Fever To Tell and how different that album could have been if they were. It’s also interesting to think of what song(s) would have been cut from the album if one of these were picked instead. I believe that YYY’s made the right decision in the end, but I’m glad they released these three songs together too because they make a great EP that captures the bands untamed, raw sound. Have a great Tuesday, everyone! —————————————————— Band: Yeah Yeah Yeahs Origin: New York, New York Album: Machine (EP) Genre: Indie Rock, Garage Punk Released: November 5, 2002 Label: Touch and Go Records —————————————————— #yeahyeahyeahs #machine #machineep #touchandgorecords #indierock #garagepunk #vinyl #record #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcommunity #vinyloftheday #vinylgram #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #nowplaying #recordcollection #recordcollector #instavinyl #vinyigclub #albumoftheday #33rpm #45rpm #vinyljunkie #lp #ilovediscogs

Tom Waits. For me he's a little bit like Nick cave, I really enjoy the kooky wierdo rock songs, and the more traditional ballady ones I don't enjoy as much. This album has a few really good tracks but a few bits and pieces of guff 😂 but the other two albums I have by him are far better. This is swordfishtrombone, and considered a classic. . . . . . . . . #vinylcollection #recordcollection #rock #metalvinyl #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyladdicts #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #vinylcollector #vinylgram #albumcollection #recordcollector #rockonvinyl #rockvinyl #nowplaying #onmyturntable #bluesRock #indie #classicrock #songwriter #soloartist #tomwaits

Born 94 years ago today Miles Davis was one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century (and I'm totally aware, that with this sentence I didn't really say anything). Give a spin to one of his records not only today but anytime. My choice for today is 'Miles Smiles' recorded in 1966 with his second great quintet. I recently bought a current reissue but I still dig the sound of the weary and noisy Czechoslovakian mono pressing I own for a long time, but can't remember where I bought it. #vinyladdict #vinylgram #vinylcollector #vinylart #vinylcommunity #vinyladdiction #vinyllove #vinyllover #vinylobsession #digging #vinyloftheday #record #cratedigging #instavinyl #recordcover #recordcollection #vinyljunkies #albumart #ilovevinyl #recordoftheday #nowplaying #jazz #vintagevinyl #milesdavis

Let’s get real guys, Who is your favourite band/artist ever? I go through stages of listening to bands, but Bright Eyes is the one I come back to constantly! His albums are always a complete journey, Obersts lyrics are some of the best I’ve ever read and his range of songwriting gets better and better with each album - I can’t wait to see what the next one brings, and judging on the singles, we’re looking at another home run! . . #vinyl #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcommunity #onmyturntable #nowspinning #vinyllove #vinylporn #vinyligclub #vinylgram #instavinyl #vinyladdict #vinyljunkie #records #recordcollection #albumoftheday #brighteyes #folk #country #emo #alternative #indie #bestalbum

The Bee Gees - The Very Best Of (1990)... This LP right here was in fact the very first LP that was ever given to me, handed to me by my nan as she replaced this with a CD Copy, and to this day it’s still in my possession... I absolutely loved “New York Mining Disaster 1941” and then the entirety of side 2, especially “You Win Again” and “Ordinary Lives” ... this is an extremely low volume pressing due to the amount of track’s per side, but none the less has a special place in my collection... I wouldn’t mind seeing a reissue of this across 2 LP’s, or a reissue or the compilation “The Record”.. . . #thebeegees #beegees #thebeegeesvinyl #beegeesvinyl #vinyl #vinyllp #vinylcollection #vinylrecords #vinyllover #vinyljunkie #vinyladdict #vinylcollector #vinylcollection #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #instavinyl #instavinyls #recordcollection #vinyloftheday #nowspinning #vinylgram #vinyljunkies #vinylclub #vinyladdiction #vinylcollective #vinylgram #instavinylrecords #90svinyl #60smusic #70smusic #rhinorecords #polydorrecords

#mayvinylchallenge Day 26 - Mascot / Character Act / Stage Persona ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Bob's Burgers Music Album. Sorry, this is a very plain shot as my entry for today's theme and I am also stretching that theme very liberally but I don't think I have ever posted this record before (and I got very busy today 😂). I was thinking about posting a comedy record by The 12th Man but only a handful of Aussie males of a certain age would even understand what that even was. Instead, here is the record from the deluxe box set featuring all the amazing songs featured in Bob's Burgers sung in character. I will do a photo shoot one day for all the cool stuff included in the set. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #vinyl #records #music #33rpm #45rpm #vinylcollection #vinyljunkie #vinyligclub #nowspinning #vinylcommunity #dj #hiphop #record #vinylrecords #currentlyspinning #vinylcollector #recordcollection #recordstore #vinyladdict #vinylporn #art #instavinyl #lp #vinylgram #nowplaying #recordcollector #vinyloftheday #vinylcollectionpost #bobsburgers

It’s Day 26 of @jennn_erator ‘s #mayvinylchallenge (Mascot, Character, or Stage Persona). . . For today’s mascot post I give to you, “Chaly,” the winged skull bat from my favorite metal band, Overkill. While not as widely-known as Motörhead’s Snaggletooth/Warpig, Megadeth’s Vic Rattlehead, or of course Maiden’s Eddie, I’d argue he has earned his place in metal history over 35 years. . . Chaly has graced the front cover of 15 of the band’s 19 studio albums, plus live albums, shaped die-cuts, other back covers, the hat I own, and tons of other merch. The band is from New Jersey, USA, so I can only assume the bat’s name is “Charlie” and is pronounced “Chaly” ala Jersey-style… but I’ve never seen that confirmed anywhere. . . I do know that Avenged Sevenfold basically ripped off the idea and apparently paid a copyright settlement to Overkill (also not confirmed but would make sense). What is also cool about that situation, though, is (Overkill vocalist) Bobby Blitz’s attitude and commentary on the matter, saying, “That’s obviously a form of flattery, to some degree. And the fact that those guys sell a lot of records, the fact that we’ve been mentioned in the same sentence many times now for over a decade, it gives us, let’s say... a light that we wouldn’t normally get... gives us the attention we wouldn’t normally have. So I really don’t have any problems with any of that stuff.” . . . #vinyl #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollectionpost #vinyljunkie #vinyladdict #vinylporn #vinylgram #vinylcommunity #vinylcollecting #vinylrecords #vinyloftheday #instavinyl #records #recordcollection #recordcollector #recordoftheday #nowplaying #nowspinning @overkillofficial #overkill #overkillband #skullcrusher #chaly #thrashmetal #thrashvinyl #rottentothecore #metalvinyl

You can't talk about heavy metal without talking about PENTAGRAM. The legendary D.C. band has been committed to the dark arts for more than forty-five years, and has only recently seen the kind of recognition its legacy deserves. Though the band has released nine influential full-lengths over the course of its career, PENTAGRAM's most popular and influential material since it's Relapse resurrection 15 years ago can be found in First Daze Here, a collection of the band's earliest works that has been out-of-print for years and will now finally see a new reissue via Relapse this coming June 2016. Its companion First Daze Here Too, a 22-track collection of unreleased studio recordings and live rehearsals from the early '70s, will also see its first reissue since going out of print several years ago. Both reissues have been newly remastered and include in-depth liner notes from founding PENTAGRAM member / original drummer Geof O'Keefe along with gorgeously revitalized layouts. . . #pentagram #firstdazeheretoo #relapserecords #metal #metalhead #heavymetal #doom #sludge #stoner #vinyl #vinylcommunity #vinylcollector #vinylgram #vinylrecords #metalvinyl #grindpromotionrecords

Spinning some WPC this morning (minus the rest of the Pumpkins). His solo album, and probably my favourite of his solo ventures, ‘Ogilala’. European original, released in 2017 on pink disc, with a beautiful album cover of his family. Being played is ‘Aeronaut’ from its A-side. If you’re a fan of SP they’ll be plenty more in good time! - Loz #vinylcollection #vinylgram #vinyls #records #vinylrecords #wpc #billycorgan #smashingpumpkins #picturedisc #vinylcommunity

Lialeh - OST (1974) It is crazy for us in 2020 to believe, but in 1974 one of the best drummers of the era accepted the gig to produce, compose and perform the soundtrack to a pornographic film. Made with a predominantly black cast and recognised for being the first major African-American porno, the film has largely been forgotten other than for historical importance and for its Bernard Purdie soundtrack. Purdie, a groove drummer of such skill he even invented his own shuffle style, sings on the title track, while an excellent Sandi Hewitt handles most of the vocal duties on the album. Given the subject matter, the lyrics and performances are definitely NSFW (best listened with headphones), however it could easily fit in with Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It On' or peak Teddy Pendergrass. Given it has a sense of cohesive story to it, the album holds up better than many soundtracks of the blaxploitation era

Aretha Franklin - I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You (1967) Although her earlier Columbia sides feature some worthwhile material, Aretha Franklin became one of the greats on 1967's 'I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You'. Most soul albums from the era were a mix of originals and cover versions, however where most of them used covers as filler to pad out an LP, Aretha's skills as an interpreter make every song essential, riveting listening. Right from the get go, Aretha takes Otis Redding's Respect and completely transforms it into one of her signature songs, recontextualising it as the feminist anthem in the process. Elsewhere, the album is filled with plenty of bluesy material like the stanky title track, while also containing stylistic excursions like the self-penned Burt Bacharachesque Don’t Let Me Lose This Dream. The album ends on a high note with Aretha tackling Sam Cooke's A Change is Gonna Come, easily equalling Cooke's superb original. Altogether, ‘I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You’ is a powerful statement of purpose, and one of the best and most consistent soul albums of the 1960s
